Source code information


Compiled and worked out of the box. Download a scene on the project website and run mitsuba name_of_your_scene.xml (mitsuba found in the "binaries" folder of the project).
Easy to find/install dependencies: 2 because installing mitsuba on linux requires several changes on ubuntu 19.10.
** In I changed -std=c++11 into -std=gnu++11 ;
** In mitsuba/build/release/mtsgui I changed QtCore, QtOpenGL (and so on) into Qt5Core, Qt5OpenGL (and so on)
** in data/scons/,line 392 changed QtCore into Qt5Core.
